Posted on: 12th March 2019

  Professor of EU Law, Michael Dougan, commented “There is still no mechanism by which the UK is entitled unilaterally to terminate the “backstop”” after analysing the so-called “Strasbourg Agreement” published last night. His Summary comment sent to me earlier this morning, after burning the midnight oil is set out below and his full analysis […]

Conservatives can be conquered if we can cooperate

Posted on: 21st February 2019

Is the progressive centre-left splintering into factions? Factions which re-rehearse historical disagreements with each other? Or are we witnessing early turmoil which will lead to a more cooperative and powerful re-alignment? 11 brave MPs resigned this week in protest at increasing evidence of intolerance and bigotry in the ranks of their former Parties. They deserve […]

Brexit - What Next

Meanwhile Brexit continues to divert attention…

Posted on: 31st January 2019

Meanwhile Brexit continues to divert attention; from the on-going crisis in the NHS, a housing system which rewards wealthy investors to the detriment of those in need and the many state schools which are struggling to survive on their diminishing budgets. And our environment hasn’t had a look-in for ages. The Government’s draft Environment Bill […]

Never forget…

Posted on: 27th January 2019

We will never forget. Today, 27 January 2019, marks 74th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. 1.1 million Roma, Gypsies, gays, Jews were murdered there. Today marks the commemoration of the Holocaust and genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur. The language of hatred must never go unchallenged. Let’s […]

A new year. But will it be a new dawn? We can of course hope, wish and pray. But let’s also WORK in 2019 to build a better future for young people.

Local Post offices in jeopardy

Posted on: 7th October 2018

Since the 2015 General Election scores of local post offices have faced the threat of closure. This is not merely a coincidence. It has everything to do with a Conservative Government which backtracked on a deal agreed when they were forced by their Liberal Democrat partners to accept reasonable protections for our vital rural post […]

Conservatives congratulated for finally admitting their policies have granted multi-million tax-dodge to wealthy second homers

Posted on: 26th June 2018

Prospective Liberal Democrat MP, Andrew George has welcomed signs that Conservatives now admit that their policies have been granting an “industrial-scale tax-dodge” for thousands of wealthy second homers. Mr George said, “Of course it’s embarrassing for the Conservatives. But we should at least congratulate them for finally admitting that their policies represent a shocking tax […]

Young voter apathy is great news for the well-heeled establishment

Posted on: 26th June 2018

Attending Mounts Bay Academy’s assembly this morning I told students that the well-heeled establishment is very content with young voter apathy. “The conservative establishment don’t want you to take an interest in politics. They don’t want you to vote. Because if you do… if you do… they’d have to take notice of you. Rather than […]

NHS “sticking plaster” cash promise is nothing like enough

Posted on: 17th June 2018

Today’s hastily cobbled together face-saving NHS cash initiative by the PM is nothing like enough. It won’t even come close to resolving the serious crisis her Government has placed our NHS in. Welcome as it is, the extra funding is a more of a sticking plaster for the tattered reputation of the Conservative Party than […]
